North Carolina's political maps for the state legislature are unconstitutional and must be redrawn before the 2020 elections, a court has decided. A panel of judges struck down the maps Tuesday, in a 357-page ruling that focused on the level of political partisanship used to draw them. The maps were drawn in 2017 to replace previous maps, drawn in 2011, that had also been ruled unconstitutional. Both sets of maps were drawn by North Carolina's Republican-led legislature.

Non-partisan map....yeah right, I'll believe it when I see it. Republicans are incapable of creating "non-partisan, maps. If they aren't cheating they are not breathing.

The only part of the constitution the GOP loves is the 2nd amendment. The rest is toilet paper for them.

Broad Brush much?

Republicans don't like the first amendment which guarantees freedom of worship? You haven't been around many evangelicals.

Fourth amendment? If they don't like it, why Ruby Ridge, Branch Davidians, etc.?

I could go on, but it would be easier for you to learn the Constitution and the general habits of Republicans if you are going to broad brush.

I'm sure the people of the State of North Carolina appreciate paying nearly a decade worth of legal fees to defend maps that are blatantly designed to reduce their political power.

When politicians lose gerrymandering lawsuits they should have to pay the legal fees from their own pockets.
